This Afrikaans vocabulary database allows you to learn basic words in Afrikaans.
The vocabulary list contains about 1700 meanings that were carefully selected with the help of word frequency lists to
ensure that this list contains only the basic Afrikaans words with synonyms assigned to a set of most important meanings.
The vocabulary is also divided
into topics. These topics like for example Color, Food, House, City, Clothes, Animal etc. make it
even easier to memorize the Afrikaans vocabulary. The set of Afrikaans meanings contained in this database covers close to
50% of communication in most languages because only the most frequently used words were selected for this dictionary.
Language learners often think it is very hard to learn a foreign language because they do not know any words. Instead of
learning the whole dictionary with tens of thousands of words it is very useful to learn this small set of basic Afrikaans words first.
Once you learn these words you can test your knowledge in the vocabulary trainer.
